“Rolan has a history of departing on short notice and after a brief tenure — as she did before arriving in the Yampa Valley. As this newspaper has reported, ‘Rolan left a previous job with the city of Columbia, S.C., under similarly vague circumstances’”What Mr. Douglas fails to mention is that, but for my own “reporting”, it is questionable whether SP&T would have ever known about, much less publicized, any of the information in the press reports surrounding Ms. Rolan’s previous employment history.
In the comments section of this SP&T puff piece, my comments have been purged along with every other comment I ever offered on the SP&T website. However, there remains telltale evidence that I was the one who first alerted this community to this issue.
Quoting the commentator known as “ijustlookhi”:
“thanks sbvor for doing the papers job and at least googling some info!In that same comments section, the poster known as “SteamboatsConscience”, in a rare instance of agreeing with me, also quoted one of the links which I dredged up in researching Ms. Rolan’s background.
This is ridiculous! Pilot should be ashamed at how shallow this article is….lets see how you handle it from here.
She seems like a terrible hire and I do want to know more particulars.”
Was our former City Manager aware of this employment history when he hired Ms. Rolan?
Why did SP&T only report on this employment history AFTER they got taken to the woodshed by their own readers?
Shame on SP&T (as usual)!
